Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaway Laws in Bulgaria

Promotions in Bulgaria: rules

In Bulgaria, local regulations permit companies to organise prize competitions based on chance or skill, as well as prize promotions.
In the case of competitions based on chance, companies are required to follow a complex bureaucratic/administrative process to apply for and obtain the relevant licence.
